Pi's playwright in residence Sean Devine unveiled his newest work-in-progress at CBC Studio 700 Thursday night in front of an enthusiastic crowd of more than thirty people. "Except in the Unlikely Event of War" takes a look at whether peace is actually desirable or is war, in fact, better for us all.

The actors from left to right are Alex Ferguson, Vincent Gale, Kathleen Duborg, Todd Thomson and Richard Wolfe. Except will have its second workshop this summer.

Thanks to all who came out to support Sean and new play development in Vancouver.

Set in a world where war and waste are necessary and authoritarian power is the binding force of society, Except in the Unlikely Event of War is scathing satire on the politicization of art and media and the instability of truth.

Obstructions was launched at last night's AGM-apalooza which took place at PL 1422.

Following three sold-out iterations of the Hive party series, Vancouver's Progress Lab network of indie theatre-makers are coming together to test the theory that creativity feeds on limits. Inspired in part by The Five Obstructions by Jørgen Leth and Lars Von Trier, the core artists of each participating company will submit, a few at a time and under a cold spotlight, to a list of obstructions delivered by a shadowy emcee. The companies will then be commanded to create their next production around those...

Back in late August the Pi office received an email from the folks at Groupon in Chicago telling us about a new initiative that they were launching in Vancouver called G-Team. Groupon were interested in using their service as a way to create awareness and raise funds for mission-based organizations. The lovely folks at Groupon had done some research into mission-based organizations in Vancouver and they wanted to invite Pi to be one of their first campaigns. And so, here we are!

Here's how the deal works. Pi is hoping to raise money to support the development of our Playwright-in-Residence...
